15. CO-OPs What is a CO-OP? One teacher for all courses in one semester Stay with the same friends for the whole semester Courses are usually in a specific focus area Science, Humanities, Trades etc. CO-OPs also include 3 weeks or more of work experience You get to leave school for 3 weeks straight and see what life is like in the working world!

16. CO-OPS What are the advantages of taking a CO-OP? You can apply with your friends and have the same schedule for the whole semester You can try out at least 2 different careers to see if that’s “really what you want to do for the rest of your life” You can make great contacts in the working world that will help you with post-secondary applications and with employment

17. CO-OP’S: What other advantages are there? You can earn more credits than normal in one semester – this might let you grad early You can still take X block classes like Theatre Company Labs are better: you can take longer and learn more because you don’t have to clean up after just one block Field trips are easier: no missed work to catch up on One teacher = one set of expectations for marking, behaviour etc. You won’t have a bunch of tests / projects due at the same time You can get class time to help you with some grad transitions paperwork
